Hi Craig,

I pushed another commit to the branch that passes --build-static-only through
to CAF; if you just want the patch for that it is available at
https://github.com/zeek/broker/commit/bf03a4246113c72d10530cc0c2729a3fa6f0b046.

(Note that repositories are currently being migrated; if you pull it from
somewhere make sure that you actually have that commit in the branch)
